Best, Free, Online Sailing Documentaries and Videos

There are many good sailing documentaries and videos available to watch online for free but I usually stumble upon them by chance. Here are two that I've found -

The Donald Crowhurst story
" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350">

The Joshua Slocum story
" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350">

Do you know of any more? Please provide links

We have some local documentaries but they are quite boring and not the same style as you have posted. Worst this is that they don't have translations, so I think I wont waste your time.

Re: Best, Free, Online Sailing Documentaries and Videos

I have greatly enjoupyed a series of YouTube videos Vlogs of a man who is circumnavigating England and Scotland and Wales in a small boat, often alone, sometimes with his family.

His videos are charming, usually have very nice editing, very nice photography, very nice folk music, often very quiet ambient sounds, cultural history, lots of nature, scenes of quiet anchorages and rivers and estuaries, history of local places, and a great appreciation for the spoken word.

The series is called "Keep Turning Left." There are about 500 episodes as I recall.

Here is a link to the beginning set of videos he published. If you search YouTube, find his channel, then look at his playlists. There are so many videos it is easy to get lost in them. Also, he encourages viewers to watch via his own website links, as he says the video display on home TV is better, in HD, and downloadable. He also sells his videos on DVD, something you might enjoy if streaming video is too costly or slow for you where you are.

His videos have made me want to visit the same locations.

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...PPgH_joGjuIRqk

Highly recommended.

I live aboard my 40 year old 36ft S&S 6 months of the year. I'm now in my second season and make a weekly video. Heres the latest one.

Thanks for watching
